Introducing Back Issues #7: Arachnid Action! Available April 14 at 10 am PT!


Another Back Issue of a classic quest is upon us, reliving the 2016 Quest that introduced Miles Morales to the Contest!

Green to the Contest, the new Spider-Man is given guidance by the old Spider-Man and the Summoner. As they travel the Battlerealm and train with other heroes and villains of the Spider-verse, what challenges will the Collector levy at them to keep them on their toes?

Classic Difficulty is a recreation of the original quest. While not completely 1:1, the layouts, difficulty, and dialogue are all the same as you remember. Take a stroll down memory lane and see how far you've come, or experience a quest you never got the chance to play!

Variant Difficulty is a new spin on the quest, available for Summoners level 45 and up. This version features extreme challenges, new opponents, and some map layout updates. In this Difficulty, those with the noble desire to help others will be able to press on at full strength, and bring the best out of each other!

The Variant Challenge


The heroic legacy of Spider-Man raises the spirits of all #Hero Champions but limits the potential of all others. This means that non-#Heroes can be brought into the quests, but will have very little practical usage as fighters.

Each Chapter will have class-based Champion Requirements, with Paths designed to both challenge and benefit the Champions required to enter.

Chapter 1: Mystic and Mutant
Chapter 2: Skill and Tech
Chapter 3: Cosmic and Science

Global Buffs

In addition to Buffs for each Quest designed to challenge and benefit the corresponding classes, the following 2 Buffs will be active in all fights throughout the Quest:

Pursuit of Justice: Reduces damage done (even DOT effects) by non-#Hero Champions by 95%. Non-#Heroes can join in on the quest for synergies or support, but won’t be of much use on their own.

Teamwork: Increases the Ability Accuracy of the player's entire active team by 10% for each #Hero present on it. Stand strong together!

    Looking forward to seeing the inventive uses of +50% AA. Also, as always, love me some variant rewards.

    Are the rewards using the same completion/exploration structure as in V6?
